This case report describes the clinical case of a 17-year-old woman with an undifferentiated soft tissue sarcoma in the left supratrocanteric area. The young woman came for observation at our plastic surgery hospital with a large vascular mass visible on her left side which also made walking difficult. Our patient reports the onset of the mass about two months earlier and its growth very quickly. In this case report, we will analyze the demolitive and reconstructive surgical procedures in order to guarantee our patient radical surgery and the possibility of continuing radiotherapy and any specific chemotherapy to avoid the risk of relapse and metastasis over time.

Abstract

This case report describes the clinical case of a 17-year-old woman with an undifferentiated soft tissue sarcoma in the left supratrocanteric area. The young woman came for observation at our plastic surgery hospital with a large vascular mass visible on her left side which also made walking difficult. Our patient reports the onset of the mass about two months earlier and its growth very quickly. In this case report, we will analyze the demolitive and reconstructive surgical procedures in order to guarantee our patient radical surgery and the possibility of continuing radiotherapy and any specific chemotherapy to avoid the risk of relapse and metastasis over time.
